Frank Gilroy experienced Physiotherapist Glasgow
I am a consultant Physiotherapist with 27 years’ experience working in the NHS and 17 years working at Hampden Sports Clinic. Currently, I am seeing patients at my clinics in Cardonald, near Paisley and Hyndland in the West End of Glasgow. This includes insured patients who I previously saw at Hampden Sports Clinic and those referred from Ross Hall and Nuffield hospitals.
I aim to see patients 1 or 2 times and will provide advice and exercise resources that will enable them to continue their rehabilitation at home.
About Frank Gilroy
Upon graduating in Physiotherapy in Glasgow in 1985, I spent 27 years working as a Physiotherapist within the NHS gaining experience in all areas of Physiotherapy including A ± E, paediatrics and orthopaedics. I gained my Masters in Biomechanics from Strathclyde University, Glasgow in 2009.
I have previously worked with Celtic FC and currently do clinical work with the Jockey club, the Scottish football association and the Scottish rugby union. In addition to my clinical work, I am a visiting Physiotherapy lecturer at Glasgow Caledonian University and the Physiotherapy advisor to the Glasgow Sports Surgery Service (GSSS).
I have extensive experience managing patients following orthopaedic surgery, including looking after over 1100 Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) repairs in my career. Furthermore, I have written numerous physiotherapy post-op exercise protocols that are available on this website. This includes the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction Programme which I wrote with Orthopaedic Knee Surgeon Colin Walker. I encourage patients to take responsibility for their own health and completion of their physiotherapy exercises.
I work very closely with many of the orthopaedic specialists in Glasgow and Edinburgh and see many patients who have had surgery at Ross Hall and Nuffield hospitals in Glasgow. I am registered with all insurance companies.
This website has Physiotherapy exercise programmes for my patients’ use that have been written with orthopaedic specialists in Glasgow. These exercise resources include:
- Knee exercises- The Joint Recovery Clinic
- Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction
- Meniscus injury rehabilitation programme
- Back pain rehabilitation programme
- Post total hip replacement physiotherapy guide
- Quadriceps strengthening protocol
- Calf injury exercise programme
- Frozen shoulder physiotherapy guide
